Technical Difficulties…

meep! My desktop crashed (and the monitor – I suspect my surge protector malfunctioned and fried the hardware) it also means all my articles and book reviews organised for the next four weeks went with it… Argh! Tech gods why are you ruining my life!

That’s dramatic I know, but I get a little OCD about sticking to a schedule, and now, with that out the window I’m going to need to re-orient myself over the next few days. Should I take a forced break from blogging until the computer issue is resolved, or take a few days and start writing new posts until I can get my files back?

Luckily I have a laptop as backup, and all my WIP’s are saved in triplicate to an external hard drive. I’m just hoping that the desktop isn’t trashed. There are important files, photos, and the like I need back… but I’m sure there will be a way to recover them in the worst case scenario. I’m trying not to stress. I just hope it doesn’t cost too much in repairs.

So, I guess this is a heads-up to anyone who regularly follows my blog – that there may be a pause in my regularly scheduled posts for a short while. Look forward to getting back online soon. In the meantime, happy reading and writing everybody 🙂

      Yeah I feel you. I got the computer fixed (turned out to be the monitor) then stopped working for cancer treatment for a few months, then tried to go back to work after a series of electricity supply outages, and now some of the system files and MS Office apps are glitching. Grrr. Lucky I have everything backed up because I might have to do a system restore and set everything back to factory setting to the the desktop working again. But I have my laptop as a backup in the meantime. I WILL FIND A WAY TO STAY CONNECTED!! 😀
